As we near the end of our Lenten journey, we remember Holy Week which commemorates Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem; his gift of the Eucharist; and his suffering, death, and Resurrection. Holy Week is a time of final preparations and great anticipation. Our long-term preparations of prayers, fasting, and almsgiving during Lent will continue but with greater intensity.
Palm Sunday is our doorway into the holiest week of the Church year. The three solemn liturgies on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday (Easter Vigil) are called the Triduum. Easter is the most joyous time of the year because we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. Easter is a time of new life, renewal and hope for the future. We teach our children to be joyful, kind and thankful for all the good things that God has given us and continues to give us every day. Especially during the Easter Season.
On behalf of the ELC faculty and Staff, we wish you and your families a very Holy and Blessed Easter!!
